Origins of The Estate
Roger Burgaud worked in the biscuit factory in the morning and at his farm in the afternoon.
Wine was his passion, so he bought and re-planted very nice plots of prestigious terroirs of Côte-Rotie.
Bernard Burgaud turned the family farm into a winery.
The « Domaine Burgaud » was born.
Bernard took over and re-planted abandoned vineyards.
He belongs to a generation of winemakers, who symbolize the renaissance of the Côte Rôtie.

The area of vineyards was finally sufficient to have the economic stability. Bernard hasn’t followed expansionist trends and marketing strategies, but he focused all his energie to develope his know-how and to produce the wine of excellent quality.
He installed new tanks with an automatic punching-down system. The priority was also to reduce chemical products and to maintain the quality of soil thanks to the new methods, for example cover crops planted in row-middles.
